Summary and Info
Demonstrating the power of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) applied to environmental economics problems, the authors reveal how GIS can be used to model complex real world interactions between the environment and the economy. This allows a more sophisticated evaluation of the costs and benefits of environmental policies than by conventional cost benefit techniques. Using an extended case study of a land use change problem, the authors develop an innovative methodology that has important applications to economists, environmental managers and regional planners.
